"New Moon Flu" was a term I heard floating around when I was getting my Moonlogist Certification. I was reluctant to believe it was real - the moon having such an affect on my body. But boy have themes last 6 months proved me wrong.
I want to share my particular experience with the most recent New Moon in Libra October 2021. I was on an upward trajectory - finally getting into routines and actively practicing mindsets that were healthy and keeping me from an anxiety spiral. I felt like nothing could stop me I was finally stepping into an energy I have been trying so hard to get to.
In comes the New Moon. October 6th hit me like a bag of bricks with migraines, allergies and yes, an anxiety spiral. I was actually shocked. Normally, I only get migraines due to hormones and I had just finished a successfully pain free period cycle. What was going on?
And then I remembered about the New Moon Flu, was this what that was? The physical affects that the moon brings are said to be reminders for people to turn inward. Was this a sign to step away from my virtual work world and relax? What do I need to turn inward about? I looked at my astrology and the New Moon in Libra was Activating my 12th house from my Moon Sign, my 8th house from my Rising Sign and my 3rd House from my Sun Sign. This is a nasty combination of house activations that calls upon some inner reflection - and yes, I was ignoring it.
These symptoms of the New Moon Flu did not stop after the 6th, I got so frustrated, what was i doing wrong and why was the New Moon, a astrological time for manifesting pulling me out of this perfect rhythm and routine I had going to be on track for my dream life? This is when I remembered another thing about astrology - like in life, nothing is permanent and the ever shifting energies of the skies remind us of that. This was a perfect example.
I participate in other spiritual practices so, I consulted my guides, meditated di some tarot cards and the messages I received reminded me that this New Moon Flu experience was not a set back but a reminder of what I do not want, offering me space to be shown an evaluate the importance of the habits I couldn't give 100% to while feeling low. ( I also think Saturn had something to do with it since she is so close to station direct that this was one last curve ball thrown at me to make sure I committed to specific structures in my life).
My new assumption is that the New Moon Flu hits you when you need it most. Sometimes it is to step away physically and mentally, other times it is a reminder of what a regression in progress means to you or both! My tip for you is to recognize what life areas you struggle the most with (look up the Astrological Houses) and prepare for the Moon Cycle that activates those houses, allow yourself the time to be slow, fail or falter. Accept the process.
Own Your Astrology is officially happening and I can not wait to connect with you! 💃💫💕
This 12 week workshop is something I have been dreaming up and waiting for the perfect time to present. What better time then as we absorb our transition for smmer to fall and move through the intensity of Scorpio season and the Death and ReBbrith it regularly brings. This 12 week workshop was designed to re-introduce ourselves to ourselves! It is meant to teach you the basics of astrology. help learn about our Natal Chart and master our own astrology!
Have you ever said something like "I'm a Cancer so sorry for being so emotional" or "My Venus is in Aries so I can't help but attract toxic relationships!". Over the past 5 years an an astrology I noticed that participating in "popular astrology" tends to put blame on our astrology. The minute we know something new about our natal chart we use it to explain away our problems or insecurities. With this workshop I will show you how to interpret your placements and take ownership of them. Instead of blaming them you will begin to understand them and learn to overcome their negative qualities.
This is a 12 week workshop with a live session every Sunday to learn and examine a new part of your chart. It is run via zoom and has a live Facebook group. All sessions are recorded so there is no pressure to attend in real time. There is also bonus astrology learning material and tips as we move through the 12 weeks.
It is only 65$ because I wanted to make this community as affordable as possible. It's like you buying me a latte for each session😉 (I love lattes.) There is also an option for 2 payments of 35 over 2 months.
We will be a smaller group (5-12 ppl) in order for more questions and live help from me!!
I can' wait to go on this journey with you.
Now that we are on the other side of the Summer solstice, I want you to reflect on something. Your astrological Sect.
To put it simply, Sect is if you have a day or night natal chart. To be extra specific, in your natal chart is your Sun sign located in the bottom half of the chart (if so, you have a night chart) or the top half of the chart (if so, you have a day chart). The Summer solstice on June 21st marked the brightest day of the year, and the following days mark us moving toward the darkness again as we approach the winter solstice in 6 more months.
I want you to pay attention the upcoming weeks and months and notice, which period (before or after the solstice) felt more fruitful or focused? Which period did you have more energy and which period made you the most uncomfortable? This may correlate to Sect.
If you are of the Day Sect and have your Sun sign located in the top half of your chart, the months pre-solstice may have proven more fruitful to you and the upcoming months may grow more and more contrary to your sect (as we go into darkness). This can make the upcoming months more uncomfortable and mentally intense as we are called to make more personal, emotional and spiritual adjustments.
If you are of the Night Sect the gradual movement towards winter may work in your favor. The solstice may have acted as a portal where immense stress and discomfort culminated around June 20-22 and now you are on the other side. As we move toward the winter those of the night sect may find more harmony, easy movement and confidence. At least, more so compared to what was experienced in the last 6 months.
Love Note: This short article is based off of personal musings from my own astrological studies interpretations and intuitive messages. I personally believe that there is not right or wrong with astrology but that there are endless perceptions and if the point – of – view is for the reader they will know. Feel free to share your perspectives and comparisons. Even if you think there are contradictions, speak up! This way we can all experiment and learn with astrology.
